LOCKDOWN, NJ – After returning from a two-day attempted social distancing stay with the family upstate, I’m back to replace Short Matt today. It’s what I do. Here’s what caught my eye: Dumb-Dumb Maker DeAndre Bake, Maple Leafs, MLB Life Support, NBA Defying COVID
JUST IN DEPARTMENT
DeAndre Baker was just charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm. so not only can he not play cornerback in the NFL he is also now facing criminal proceedures… How dumb is he? Very. The only only one dumber than him may be NY Giants GM Dave Gettleman for trading up in the draft to nab DeDumbdre in the first round… I think The Great Gettsy should be considered an accomplice in these proceedings.
Major League Baseball now seems like the front runner to cancel its season, while the NBA has somehow managed to hermetically seal their bubble amidst rat-licker stricken central Florida… aka Hell. Who knew? Good thing my betting app didn’t have these bets available on its offerings, I would have lost big… The Mets hope to finally beat the 1st place Marlins and not catch anything.. The Fish are due for a loss after winning a couple this week. But it is the Mets they are facing. The Amazins still can’t hit with runners in scoring position. Oh, and I read the team knew about Yoenis Cespedes opting out the night before they say he went AWOL…. somehow that doesn’t surprise me at all. Nor does this piece on GM Brodie Van Wagenen’s conflicts of interest.
Low and behold, the Rangers are eliminated but the Islanders live on to fight another day. Cruel, cruel universe we live in. But there is no denying that NHL Playoff hockey can be some of the best sports entertainment out there, even if your team is eliminated. Just look at what the Toronto Maple Leafs did last night. Down 3-zip with 3+ minutes left and they stun John Tortorella and the Columbus Blue Jackets to force a Game 5. Leafs will win the Cup. Bet on it.
The Brooklyn Nets may be ready to make a run at the playoffs… and at the Knicks fanbase. The No-Names are taking over. Depressing times indeed. I wrote an article last year stating the Nets would never have fans, guess I was wrong about that as well. I may need some new hobbies. In the meantime… C’mon ping pong balls!!!
Come back tomorrow for a man among men, Cheesy Bruin – but first add your comments below.
